Dr. Hasson/4200 Grafts/One Session/2.5 Years


#1

This patient came to see Dr. Hasson in October, 2007. 4200 grafts were placed in one session to restore the hairline and the top of the scalp. His hair characteristics are obviously wavy with a slightly above average hair shaft diameter (coarse). He started on Propecia a few months before the procedure during his initial consultation.

Amazing result!!


#3

what gets me about these before after pics and videos is the docs attempt to deceive the viewer

we all know 4200 grafts cannot possibly achieve what the video attempts to show

but instead of showing the actual transplant results, parting the hair in many ways etc to show what the transplant covered in reality, the video merely glosses over the front shots and top shots in order to give the appearance that this number of grafts totally filled in the guys lost hair

thats what gets me
we all know hair transplants are not fixes they are mere converups and attempts to make it APPEAR as if the person has more hair than they do. However most docs seem intent on covering up the coverup, trying to make the transplant appear as if it covered much more than it actually did,

love it!!
what a transformation,suits the guy well!!
was the patient ethinically from indian subcontinent,…im asking because i think that though we people have lower donor density than say blonds but i think the hair diameter on average is more than other ethincities!!..just my personal observation!

I really don’t see what you find deceiving here. The video clear shows the parting of the hair in the areas of HT. Did you watch the video fully? I doubt it, and I’ll say your post is just an attempt to slander an excellent result!

Yes, they did focus on the end result, and that is the intent of their post. But they did show the parting of the hair, but it’s time was limited, as it should be in my opinion. I guess we’re looking at it in different ways: “glass is half empty/half full”!

Oviously a transplant alone cannot achieve this on its own. Propecia is the key is what changed the whole industry. You see a guy with hairloss and then he receives a transplant and starts propecia…the result is a combination, if propecia was not in the equation we would very rarely see results like this if any

honestly have you ever seen a result of a nw6 guy with a transplant that doesnt use propecia?there lies the truth of transplants. I bet if any of these great cases stop propecia and post their pictures after a year or two the situation would be veeeeery bad.

Until someone finds the way to multiply the donor transplants will always rely on propecia to look good


#11

Look Huckleberry, Hangin’ did not ask a question. He stated his opinion, of which, I certainly believe he is entitled, however unreasonable.

From everything that I have read and seen, one could reasonably expect this kind of result from 4200 grafts “to restore [just] the hairline and the top of the scalp.”

And as someone stated earlier, the Propecia is, no doubt, having a positive effect.


#12

wow, how could I miss this one, one of the best I have seen!!

You are crazy, this is very impressive work, nothing deceiving whatsoever.

Transplant results often look fuller in photographs, because the scalp showing through the hair appears in photographs like highlights in the hair.

And the other thing is lighting: transplants look fullest under uniform diffuse lighting, especiall dim lighting.

But shine a beam of bright light at a transplanted head–such as the ceiling spot lights in many stores, restaurants, and homes, bright sunlight, especially when the setting or rising sun comes through a window straight onto your head (think commuter train, car, or plane), then your appearance is compromised.

Since I had my transplants done, I find myself avoiding such situtations, even to walking on the shady side of the street, out of direct sunlight. it’s a miserable way to live.

First of all I would like to say this is a very nice looking result.

Truthtales, to suggest that the patient achieved this quality result only because of the regrowth he achieved from propecia combined with his hairtransplant is highly doubtful. I am positive the transplant would look just as great without any medication.

You have said this about many of the results posted, attributing the growth from a procedure to the patient taking propecia and it is just not the way propecia works.

Propecia is very good at slowing down and for some stopping hairloss, but it rarely regrows any hair that will make a major signifigant cosemtic difference.

I have not seen anyone on the forums documenting such regrowth from the medication nor have I seen many people during in person consultations who have documented signifigant regrowth from propecia. There is the occasional great responder of course but I find it very few and far between. Maybe Joe has an opinion on this??

To say the patient received this nice result only because he combined propecia with the hair transplant?? I do not believe it.

OK you made a general statement about hair transplant but what about this very result that we are discussing here? You think this is deceiving? To me it is pretty damn good, almost too good to be true.

Exactly it is too good to be true
no way can that many grafts give this result

the lighting used the angles, perhaps the person himeself had unusually dense hair shafts

whatever the case this case is not typical at all
why show this then?
in order of course to make the guys looking at the video, HEY I CAN GET RESULTS LIKE THIS WITH THIS MANY GRAFTS WITH THIS DOC TOO

and that is what I find deceiving
there is no way that the guy had what appears on the video as a result, 4000 grafts cannot accomplish that thick of hair on 99 percent of guys

something is very fishy
but hey, as long as guys do not question the result, and say HEY HE LOOKS GREAT
then the docs win


#18

» wow, how could I miss this one, one of the best I have seen!! ------------------------ It is a great result but to think that all people will get this result is untrue. Ask for the guarantee- You will not get one. It may be possible but not probable. Remember to be realistic in your expectations.


#19

» OK you made a general statement about hair transplant but what about this
» very result that we are discussing here? You think this is deceiving? To me
» it is pretty damn good, almost too good to be true.

OK, I started to watch the video, and stopped as soon as I saw the before shot.

Of course you can make a guy with that much hair left look good.

When I had my transplants done, I still had some of my own hair left on top, and my transplants looked like they helped a lot.

But every year year, year after year, whatever was left of the non-transplanted hair on my scalp fell out.

Until within 5 years I was in serious trouble again.

If HT doctors want to prove something, let them show what they can do for a patient who’s a norwood 5 or 6, as the fellow in this video will likely be after a few more years of hairloss.


#20

At first I thought this guy used toppik to puff up his hair but they did prove that his hair is the real deal when they combed through his hair with no traces of toppik at all, I agree that it would be more convincing if we can see improvement like this over and over again.
